My wife left me two months ago. She went to her hometown with her Mother & two children. Her Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and is failing rapidly. She left for the weekend and never came back. She has a history of mental & physical abuse from her first husband of 27 years. She says she does not know why she has done this. She is seeing therapist from spousal abuse program. She talks to me everyday but sounds very casual about the seriousness of the situation. She rarely answers my phone calls. I asked to talk to/see her therapist because I want to know what is going on. I want to stay with her/reconcile but she seems hesitant. She has told me that I am better off without her. I tell her I love her & try to support her. She says we can't really talk about this or make any decisions till she has been ib therapy for a while. Meanwhile she moved out of the house while I was in the hospital. I told her that maybe she should have waited until she has been in therapy for a while before making any decisions like that. I love her & want to stay with her but this has been difficult. What would make her shut down like this?
